Table / Chart for Number of Portable Hand Wash Sinks and Portable Toilets
All Safety Products has provided a table / chart for the Number of Portable Hand Wash Sinks and Portable Toilets to help you in planning for your workplace, employee and business outdoor events, barbeques, festivals and other outdoor activities.
*Portable Hand Wash Sinks Note: Although the above figures are approximate figures, you can also calculate the number of sinks needed by considering the amount of "user cycles" that portable hand wash sinks of varying volumes can provide. A "User Cycle" is defined by us as 4 foot pump depressions. The foot depression dispenses 2 ounces per pump. So a typical user uses about 4 pumps or 8 oz of water to clean their hands. So in the case of a PS02 Sink (Single User 16 gallon Hand Wash Sink), 250 people could wash their hands once, providing they each "pumped" 4 times. Also in the case of heated water requirements, recovery time for heating water needs to be factored in to ensure adequate facilities are available for use. Also, you will want to consider the number of hours of event and the access available for the number of people attending the event.
